What? You Believe in Gravity? You Pinko-Liberal!

A recent article in the Telegraph asks the question and examines the answer of "Have Republicans turned their back on science?" This interesting article discusses the tide of anti-intellectualism that swept through the GOP in the 1960's and picked up steam, turning into the science-denying Goliath that it is today. He even brings up an interesting thought that certain candidates, such as the erudite Newt Gingrich, have to actually dumb themselves and their positions down to fit in with the party. Interesting read given where we're at in the primary/caucus battle.
